YMWV. I'm an XM fan. Considered Sirius but the entire risk with any satellite radio is whether it will still be around in a few years. Sirius is in much deeper financial trouble than XM.
If you're conservative by nature, XM has more conservative programming than Sirius.
But, to make you decision easier, both offer like a month online listening free. If I recall correctly. So check them out yourself.
says don't waste your money getting a car radio just for the satellite service. Instead get the kits and take the receiver with you: in the car, in your home, to the beach, in your office, etc etc. If you get the car radio, you can ONLY listen to it in THAT car. Waste of money IMO.
EDIT: Oh, Sirius does have an advantage in that they offer a lifetime subscription, which you cannot get from XM.
